The release from prison of evil child killer Michael Guider has dominated the news of late.

Such heinous violators of human life don't deserve to ever see freedom again... I would even go as far to say the death penalty would be too merciful for such evil creatures.

We are faced each and every week with violent incidents often committed by criminals on parole.

Drivers speeding, driving unlicensed, have no regard for the safety of others, such as the death last week of a young schoolboy, hit by a ratbag who shouldn't have been behind the wheel, let alone experiencing freedom.

Our judicial system is not bringing down sentences appropriate to the violent nature of the individuals they let loose into our community.

Seriously, consideration should be given to imposing life without possible chance of release, or even bringing back the death penalty.


Spring is here at last, the trees are in bloom and the blossom is adding colour to brighten our days.

Springtime is also been considered a good time to get in and clean up the house, yard ... and sheds.

I encourage you all to get in and give the place a good old spring clean and while you are doing this you may come across a few nasties you'd like to get rid of.

Boorowa has a 'Clean Up Day' coming up on Friday, October 11 between 8.30am and 11am at the Showground.

A chance to get rid of old chemicals, paint, solvents and other old household chemicals. Get rid of the old nasties and sit back saying, "That was a great spring clean".


It's almost time to take a walk to Galong to help a good cause.

Sunday, September 22 ladies will gather in Boorowa and set out for Galong.

The charity is Karinya House which is an organisation supporting vulnerable mothers and babies in Canberra and the surrounding region.

For almost 20 years Karinya House has provided supported accommodation, transitional housing, outreach, support groups and case work services to pregnant and parenting women and their families who are in crisis.

Women will again turn out in numbers giving their support to this necessary charity. If you'd like to get involved simply Google Karinya House or phone 6259 8998.


Cars on the Green went ahead last Saturday despite the rather unpleasant weather the entrants and visitors had to endure.

Fifty or so cars were presented in magnificent condition which was impressive, but I have been advised the weather halved the numbers of cars expected.

Congratulations to the Recreation Club for putting on this, what has become an annual event.

I did notice the number of cars bearing the Boorowa Car Club display banners.

Club President Angus Mitchell informed me the Club is going very well, reflected in the turn out.


A blonde suspects her boyfriend is cheating on her so she goes out and buys a gun.

She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and on opening the door she finds him in the arms of a red head.

The blonde gets really angry, she opens her purse to take out the gun and, as she does she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head.

The boyfriend yells, "No honey, don't do it!!!"

The blonde replies, "Shut up, you're next."
